Well, not really... I don't like naps, but I had a busy weekend!
The Mister got a boatload of mulch and in Michigan you gotta make hay while the sun shines or shovel mulch, whatever the case may be!
Don't be jealous of my outfit...jealousy is any ugly thing.
These are my "poop boots". I had to get them because our old dog (RIP) use to poop giant poops RIGHT where I walked in the yard. I hear these are boots for KIDS that live on farms, they call them "barn boots".
So how happy am I with my newish yard?!
New Lavender rose:
Lupines (do you have one? go get some! they spread, come up every year and are gorgeous!)
it made a baby:
then I tore out that plastic trim by our front walk:
After all the mulch and stones we went and got tile for our backsplash. We ran to Home Depot, Menards, Lowes and some tile shop! I wanted to make sure I didn't pick the 1st one I saw because I knew in 2 weeks I'd find another that I wished I got. There was one place that we didn't go because I KNEW I'd go into tile overload! We ended up with the 1st tile I saw. We had to go to 2 different Lowe's stores 3 times to get all that we needed- apparently it's been pretty popular!
We're going to do the tumbled marble and then cut the little glass/marble mosaics and insert them randomly.
The Mister is really excited to cut around ALL the outlets:
While we were at Home Depot we parked next to this van:
It seems that perhaps they're having some trim trouble... The Mister wondered if it whistled while it went down the road?! I feel bad for this person, I think they need a glue gun, but the Mister's comment struck me so funny i just cracked up again while typing it!
We went to Target, I got new PJ's
I like the pink ones better but they didn't have the pants in my size (they had stars instead of stripes) the Mister said "you've got enough pink already"
I said SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
All in all it was a productive weekend, which i like!
I've decided I need all new Stainless appliances, so I'm going down to the studio because at the rate I sell things in my etsy shop it's going to take 72 years to make enough $$!
Have a great day!!
Here's my little plug about the BABY HAT DRIVE
As most of you know, my daughter was adopted from China and I left a little piece of my heart there. I'm collecting hats to keep the children and babies warm in the winter. Many live in orphanages that are without heat.
1. make a baby hat, toddler hat, or kid sized hat (you can take the non-crafty way out and buy one if you must)
2. email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for my address.
3. I'll take care of shipping them to CHINA next fall.
any questions- please feel free to email me!!
